San Luis Potosi, Mexico - On Monday, a billboard appeared seeking sexual abuse children to come forward and testify against accused pedophile Catholic priest Eduardo Córdova Bautista from the San Luis Potosi Archdiocese. The billboard sponsored by the Victims Foundation of Pedophiles (VFP). The VFP group included a Facebook page, but has since been disabled, an e-mail and a Twitter account on the billboard.
The billboard was removed about four hours later. No one knows who order it removed.
Bautista had been accused of sexually molesting more than 100 children in the last 30 years. He has been ordered by the Archdiocese of San Luis Potosi not to leave town.
The San Luis Potosi Department of Justice on Monday has requested for the Archdiocese to hand over all the complaints of sexual abuse against Bautista, according to Miguel Ángel Covarrubias, the head prosecutor.
The Archdiocese of San Luis Potosi confirmed during a press conference that the Vatican has received complaints and are looking into multiple sexual abuse allegations against Bautista. Some of the victims began to testify against Bautista in recent weeks.
Bautista hasn't been charged, but is facing multiple charges for sexual abuse and molesting children while being a priest.
